Texas-based flight academy takes in Chinese students

By Matthew Everett

US Flight Academy, a US Aviation subsidiary based in Denton, Texas, will take over the training of 60 Chinese student pilots. The students faced an uncertain future after the closure of Wright Flyers Aviation in Hondo, TX, but thanks to a new agreement, US Flight Academy will take over the assets of Wright Flyers Aviation.

The academy currently operates similar programs at other facilities and is looking to get the students flying again within the week. Under the deal, US Flight Academy will also utilize the Hondo facilities to continue the training program which will minimize effects of the transition on the students.
